Let's hear it for Belgium!
Actually, everytime I hear the name Belgium I think of a movie from the 70's, "Murder By Death" a comedy with Peter Falk, James Cocoa, David Niven and others, it was hilarious. But there was a line in the movie where Peter Falk's charactor (Sam Diamond, a spoof of Sam Spade), kept calling Jame Cocoa's charactor (A spoof of Hercule Perot) "Frenchy" and James Cocoa yells back:
"I'm a Belgy! Not a Frenchy!"
